Military + First Responders: We Have More In Common Than You Think
with Jonathan + Kylie Towns
about KYLIE + JONATHAN
Prior to their marriage, Jonathan spent two and a half years as an officer candidate for the US Marine Corps. After sustaining an injury during a training evolution, Jonathan was released from his contract prior to commission. Shortly after their wedding, Jonathan became frustrated with his career as a small business manager and expressed to Kylie a desire to pursue a more fulfilling career in public service. With a grandfather who served nearly 30 years in federal law enforcement and an uncle who served nearly 35 years with the Dallas Police Department, Jonathan felt a calling to Law Enforcement. Kylie fully supported Jonathan’s ambitions and they set out for a new career and Jonathan was ultimately hired by a small police department near Dallas where he honorably served for four years. During his time there, he worked in patrol and was a member of the department’s regional SWAT team. Jonathan has recently moved to a much larger police department within the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex and is currently assigned to the Patrol Division. Kylie works as the development coordinator for a small private school outside of Dallas.
